[PATCH 5/7] x86, boot, LLVM: Use regparm=0 for memcpy and memset




Use the standard regparm=0 calling convention for memcpy and
memset when building with clang.

This is a work around for a long standing clang bug
(see https://llvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=3997) where
clang always uses the standard regparm=0 calling convention
for any implcit calls to memcpy and memset that it generates
(eg for structure assignments and initialization) even if an
alternate calling convention such as regparm=3 has been specified.
